Washington Examiner – Big companies like Google, Apple, and IBM are no longer requiring applicants to hold a college degree. This is a significant change. Historically, employers have required a college degree whether or not it was necessary to do the job.
Welp, its official. The long con is complete. The world is no longer even pretending that my college degree is worth anything more than the paper it’s printed on.
I’ve been on both the Google and Facebook campuses and I can tell you those places are packed to the gills with people smarter than I could ever hope to be. So maybe they’re sick of having all type-A Mark Zuckerberg types bombing around the campus on their motorized skateboards? I don’t know, but what I do know is this officially ends the hope of any of us normies getting jobs at a mega company like Google or Facebook.
Now the guy who was smart enough to punt on going into massive college debt and take a few Codecademy classes instead is going to be jumping into the fray too? Welp, lets all hope the blog game catches fire because these college degrees no longer promise us anything; not even pretend value.
